Hi all. New to the forum. I failed miserably at my first attempt to make smoked sausage. I have all the equipment needed: grinder, mixer, stuffer and a pellet smoker. Followed a u tube recipe posted by Damon in Texas. My sausages disintegrated (meaning the casings fell apart and the meat dropped) and I don’t know why for sure. I suspect I added too much water but the links looked just fine after stuffing. Any thoughts on why this would happen? I used hog casing from the company “The sausage maker”.
